I took the last Friday of March and the first Monday of April off from work to spend a long weekend in Xi’an, China. China is such a huge country that you possibly cannot see everything in one go even if you had a month vacation time but Japan’s proximity to it gives us somewhat of an advantage and I occasionally do extended weekend visits.
There are direct flights between Tokyo and Xi’an but because of airline alliance, etc. and change of schedule by the airline beyond my control, I took a rather long journey to my destination spending a whole day travelling which included changing airports in Shanghai. Wasn’t simple but I got there in the end.
